Sugahara Bud Vase

Regular price $32 Unit price  per 

Description:
Colorful glass bud vases handmade in 4 different shades and 3 organic shapes.  Each bud vase is entirely mouth-blown by skilled Japanese glassblowers, and will vary slightly in shape and tone.  Place a single stem flower inside, or display a dry leaf - or simply have the glass bud vase stand alone, without holding anything inside, and enjoy its sculptural, natural stone-like shape.  

Variation:
Each vase is mouth-blown and unique so there will always be variation in the shape and color.  
Shapes: Flat, Round, Tall. Colors: Tan, Violet, Forest Green, Indigo

History:
Based in Chiba, Japan - Sugahara Glassworks Inc. was started by Kazuma Sugahara almost a century ago in 1932. At its start, Sugahara Glassworks was run by only a single glassblower.  Now they produce over 4000 beautifully designed glass pieces with 40 glassblowers for global distribution.  Sugahara glassworks are truly world-renowned, largely in part to the company's practice of having their glassblowers also act as their lead designers behind their collections - a rarity in the glass-works world.  Sugahara values the vast knowledge of their glassblowers, and they rely on this experience and knowledge to create glass products that draw out the true essence, beauty and versatility of glass for all of us to enjoy.
